Contemporary societies, due to the immense interconnections existing and the increase of the mobility of people (voluntary or not, permanent or temporary), are characterized by cultural diversity and pluralism. This implies that the world experiences new phenomena in which the defense of identities, nationalism, the demands of social movements, the claim of cultural rights, etc. are mixed. For this reason, The purpose of this exchange is to contribute to overcome these challenges through the analysis of cultural diversity in order to exchange experiences and knowledge, discovering their links and facing t1_DwVgXzeIjBjn2OxBCjPglwogether the challenges it poses.
